The absolute best fabric we have for support without having to line the cups! Yes, it's true - there is no need to line the cups made from Duoplex. Not only is it strong and supportive, but it is also a reversible fabric (shiny on one side - matte finish on the other) so you have your choice of which side to use. Duoplex is 100% polyester non-stretch stable knit, and it's the fabric we use in our bra kits. Sold by the half meter. (0.5 meters = 19.7 inches)
Duoplex is 60" wide. One half meter piece is 19.7" x 60".

Good strong duoplex, appears to be very well made ith no visible flaws and pleasant to the hand. It will be very nice to sew.

This is the only fabric I can find that doesn't need double layers or rebar inside. I use it for all of my bras now.

Bought this, preshrunk (didn't shrink!) It looks great and it is thicker and stronger than 40 denier tricot. But I'm waiting till I get my fit perfected before cutting into this, because this is such nice fabric.

I'm excited to try out using this fabric. Since this is one of the strongest lingerie fabrics available, my bra design should be more successful!!!

I love using duoplex for my bra's since often I don't want to line my bra, and you don't have to with this fabric. It gives all the support that I need without lining. Having a shiny and a non shiny side also provides options.
I found using a 75 needle with Lingerie Thread works best in my machine.
